39 years old here. had my wrx for 5 years. im running tomei el headers, perrin catted downpipe and a borla catback. mines the sedan so the 2 mufflers sounds much different than a hatch. i also put a bottle type resonator in the rear of my midpipe. its overall not really that loud unless i stomp on it. im running the racecomp gt worx strut and spring setup too. its quite firm but much better than stock. my wife doesnt complain about the ride or the noise so thats always a plus!
